Those saying the alleged bullying of late Labor Senator Kimberley Kitching shouldn’t be discussed are those “with a guilty conscience,” according to Sky News host Andrew Bolt.
Since Ms Kitching’s sudden death last Thursday, claims have surfaced she had been subject to bullying and exclusion from members of her party – notably senior women within the Senate.
Mr Bolt, who counted Ms Kitching as a close friend, said he was “very angry” about the late Senator’s treatment by senior Labor figures.
“We’re all mad as hell,” he said.
“The only people who are saying: ‘Please don’t talk about this Labor bullying now’, as they wipe the crocodile tears from their eyes, are the people who didn’t love Kimberley.
“People mainly of the left. People, maybe, with a guilty conscience.”
